I require participants to play a short .swf game as part of my Inquisit 4 survey. I put the games are in the survey through the <html> function, with a url linking to the .swf  file embedded in HTML code in a separate HTML file. The flash games are hosted on external websites, and all of the games play fine in the Inquisit program.

However, when the survey is test run online the game does not load at all - it firstly has about 5-10 seconds of blank screen before finally a blank square appears where the game is supposed to be, as though the link is broken.
Again, everything works in the program, it is only online where I experience this problem. Any ideas as to where I am going wrong?

<trial deanimator>
/timeout = values.playtime
/stimulustimes = [0=htmlgame; 30000=warning; 31000=timer]
/showmousecursor = true
/inputdevice= mouse
</trial>

<html htmlgame>
/items = gameslist
/select = noreplace
/position = (15, 50)
/showborders = false
/showscrollbars = false
</html>

<item gameslist>
/1="moremindlessviolence.html"
/2="bejewelled.html"
/3="deadzed.html"
/4="bubbleshooter.html"
/5="folds.html"
/6="deanimator.html"
</item>

Either there's something wrong with your HTML code / the embedding, the site hosting the SWFs is blocking embedding under certain circumstances, etc.

It's impossible to tell based on the Inquisit syntax snippets alone, as they don't speak to that at all.

I should also note that -- preferably -- you would obtain the actual SWF files and have Inquisit display them directly via the <video> element.
